Wednesday Hodgepodge

Joining up with today's questions "From This Side of the Pond"

1. What is a pet peeve you have when vacationing?
Rude people who cut in lines because they think their vacation is more important than my vacation. I don't think so people.

2. Would you describe yourself as a light packer or do you need everything in your closet plus the kitchen sink?
I become lighter each time I pack. This summer's trip is going to be interesting since its two weeks and we have to take a lot of warmer clothes. Plus add in flying and making sure we don't go over weight requirements for the plane and I really only want to check two bags because it is too darn expensive to pay for a third.

3. What's the best lesson a child ever taught you?

4. Share one piece of advice you'd give a recent graduate as they attempt to enter the job market?
Don't expect to get a high-paying job right away. Your parents worked a long time to get to where they are to live comfortably but we were poor out of college too.

5. What's your favorite lemon something?
I'm allergic to citric acid so I can't eat lemons anymore. I used to love homemade lemon bars though.

6. Flat sandal, wedge, heel...your favorite footwear?
Sandals but not flip flops.

7. What do you like best about a beach holiday? If you're not a beach lover (GASP!!) what do you dislike the least?
Hate to say this, but I'm not a beach lover. Its too hot and humid for me. But I guess the best thing would be hopefully good seafood since you were near a big stretch of water.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I cannot believe how busy I am at work. I'm supposed to be keeping track of what I'm doing each day to get my job reclassified and I don't even have time for that.


  1. I agree with you about those seeking their first job. It seems that so many of them expect to get 80K jobs just because. I worked forty years and found that it is a slow process to become successful. (Never did have an 80K job)

  2. I'm curious where you are going on vacation since you need warmer clothes in the summer?

  3. Though I do love the beach, I'm not a fan of the humidity. Wreaks havoc on my hair! :)
